WOAH! I remember the Rainbow in Denver! Saw a few shows there but I'd be embarassed to say what they were. Sad, did you hear what it turned into? A Walgreens

Purple Gel - do you mind givin' a little review of the Marley show (small venue?) and the Talking Heads? -- I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Little Feat yet. - Ashes

The first show I ever went to was 7/30 Irvine Meadows (screw the whole "verizon wireless amphitheatre" BS) and I saw.......


CSNY!!!!!

I loved it. Was in tears when they played wooden ships. It was cool.. they played all the old stuff.. including deja vu (!). Crosby's voice was off the hook, and neil was going off on guitar, and yeah. I loved it. I wish I could have gone to a dead show =/

Purple gel-
Marley? Tosh? The Clash? The Wall? Zeppelin in Rome? English Beat? Zappa/Beefheart? Talking Heads at CBGB's? U2 at Red Rocks? Little Feat in '77? DAVID LINDLEY AND EL RAYO-FUCKING-X? You're killing me.

Hey, I did see Santana in '78. I don't think I ever fully recovered from that one. Saw them again on the Supernatural tour. Totally different kind of show. Everlast, who did Turn Your Lights On on that album opened and Carlos joined him on stage for it. That was nice.
